She cordially appreciates the initiative taken by the government and believes that this initiative will encourage tax payment in institutional and individual levels.

If the scope of income tax fair and other tax service activities are widened and the tax rates are reduced then people will be more encouraged to submit their returns and that will ultimately increase the total tax revenue of the government, she says.
